Last time, we shared two stylish looks of classic trench coat. Today, let’s talk about another transitional piece–the jacket. Compared to omnipresent leather jackets and blazers, tweed or jacquard jacket can add unique textures, details and colors to our outfits. When paired with youthful or edgy pieces, like the printed shorts and leather pants on today’s featured ladies, it will result an attractive and sophisticated juxtaposition.

Miranda Kerr’s look is what we all can recreate and pull off. The breathable woven fabric and soft palette make this affordable ikat jacket delicate, feminine, and season appropriate. It perfectly polished up the casual, edgy chambray shirt, leather pants and ankle booties combo. A great designer bag and distinguish sunnies elevated the whole look.

Olivia Palermo’s outfit below is more for risk takers. The mix of different prints (stripes, florals and animal print) and styles (sophisticated tweed jacket paired with playful shorts and casual backpack) is busy, so keep them in a relatively simple color scheme, then add neutrals to tone down the loudness.

Black and white epitomize the modern simplicity, but today’s featured fashion maven reinterpreted this classic combination: By adding ethereal white skirt, jeweled belt and embellished strap pumps, Olivia Palermo gave this monochrome palette a feminine and graceful vibe; By teaming a sheer surplice blouse with an equally eye-catching wide-leg striped trousers, Zanita Morgan made a strong impression that is bold, adventural yet so chic and infectious.

Attention to details always matters: from Olivia Palermo’s impeccable hair and dainty jewelry to Zanita Morgan’s messy waves and revolver pendant necklace, each serves for the overall result and impact.
